    Grovelling Under Golden Arches- Malaysia Truly Arabia? 




    Good to see that sensible Muslims in Malaysia are disowning the sectarian discrimination imposed by Mcdonalds there, after the fast food chain confirmed that it allows customers to bring their own birthday cakes as an exception to its “No Outside Food” policy…

    …AS LONG AS THE CAKES ARE CERTIFIED TO BE HALAL or permissible for consumption by Muslims. ( my capitalisation).

    The local Islamic Council leader, Wan Ji Wan Hussein, spoke up on this grotesque double-standard, by which Christian or Buddhist kiddies will be shut out if they dare bring a non-halal cake along for their birthday parties.



    “What they are doing will only make Islam look like this very rigid religion when, actually, especially on matters of food, it is quite simple.”

    •  Refreshing to see that rebuke, and it’s about time Mcdonald’s here in Jakarta reviewed their behaviour, that pandering we saw during Ramadhan last year…

    •  …but there’s a lot more needs to be done in Malaysia, where iniquitous intolerance got the stamp of approval from the highest court in the land…

    • …when it ruled that Malaysian Christians may not call GodAllah…

    • ….despite the fact that the Malay word for ‘God’ is indeed ‘Allah'( as it is in Indonesian, and widely used by Christians)
    • ——–
    • …a ruling that effectively relegated a universal deity to the status of a sectarian monopoly.
    • Mr.Wan and other wise heads in his organisation should be out campaigning to have the high court’s dogmatic diktat reversed.

      Too far you go in talking against the rule of Ramadhan.
      Non-Muslim need to respect holy fast month and not be seen to eat in public.

      Malaysia used to be a pretty good place to live but not now, if you happen to be non-Muslim.
      This ban on birthday cakes is stupid and unfair but banning Christians from speaking of God as God (in their own language!) is the worst kind of Islamic bigotry.

      But you are crazy if you hope it will be overturned.
      Once the shariocracy is empowered, they won’t ever give up control, over Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
      It’s the same as fascism or communism, no freedom and no fun.

    OMG! Blasphemous Flip-Flops Kick-Start IslamoNazi Indignation! 

    And guess who’s in the news for outlandish outbursts once more?

    Yup, Indonesia’s IslamoNazis, who have got so much time on their hands that they’ve turned from soul-searching to sole examination.

    Their latest shock/horror revelation is that a part of the pattern on the rubber sole of a popular brand of sandal refers to God Almighty!


    FPI Minta Pemerintah Usut Peredaran Sandal Berlafaz Allah


    Not in the letters of the alphabet that Indonesians use, of course, which is the same one you and I use, nor even in the old Javanese alphabet, which is still pleasingly used for street signs in Jogja.

    • ————————————

    Their spokesman in  West Kalimantan Province, is in grand rant/rave mode, judging from his comments quoted by Tribunnews.com.

    • ………………….

     Kalimantan is the Indonesian name for Borneo


    Habib M Iskandar Alkadri wants concrete steps. “This is related to the abuse of Islam.” 
    He’s worried  –  these blasphemous flip-flops may not yet be circulating all over the place, so decisive action must be taken“It must be addressed immediately, the flip-flops traced and withdrawn from the market.

    Iskandar then waxes very ecumenical, observing that no religion would want an inconvenient atmosphere. All are obliged jointly in maintaining security and stability among religions.
    What the heck does that mean? Well, he explains for us. “This is a SARA issue, and this is very sensitive!”

    For overseas readers, SARA is the acronym for the phrase used to refer to racial/religious incitement issues, and Iskandar expresses concern at retards who spend their days examining the soles of sandals word by passers-by.

     “We are aware of the educational background of various communities – it is feared things could happen that are not desirable,” he said.


    • anfpi2
    • ———————————
    • Well, an FPI cadre certainly is qualified to discuss things that are not desirable.

    Thuggery, bullying, vandalism are their hall-marks, as we have oft recorded here – nor should we forget their leading light, Sobri Lubis, caught on video, urging a rabid rabble to ‘kill, kill, kill‘ innocent members of the Ahmadiyah minority.


    • alubis Sobri Lubis



    Alkadri, as far as we know, has never called for the expulsion of Sobri Lubis from the FPI for that outrageous incitement.

    But he concludes his exposition of tolerance with this rhetorical flourish.
    “Never again let there be abuse like this…we must maintain the comfort and safety of religion,” he said.

    But he neglects to give examples of the FPI’s previous input into the comfort and safety of religions, including his own.

    So I gladly oblige.

      Please understand that normal followers of Islam do not care what people wear on their feet and will not ask other people to look at their flipflops or anything else.
      FPI better look into their own souls and not other soles. Haha, yes we need to laugh at them but they have no humor so no point.

      I have heard about politicians flip-flopping on an issue but this is something uniquely strange.
      Are you sure it isn’t a late April Fool story, or are these islamonazis honestly such fools.
      Thanks anyway, I have shared this on Facebook.
      Oh and I like the Halloween post too, just goes to show what a bunch of wets they have running schools in Connecticut and I suppose lots of other places.
      I think Toronto did this surrender thing on Halloween a few years ago, but not sure. Where I live there are no real problems yet but big-city Canada’s as bad as anywhere these days for appeasement. .

    Ten Years After – The UK Elite Still Don’t Get It! 

    Somewhat weary tonight, but have been pushed into writing about this after watching Euronews, which shockingly described the monstrous assaults by savages in 2005 and last month as the work of ‘militants.’

    • liberal-media-bias


    Much like the BBC and the ABC, which also won’t readily call terrorists simply terrorists.

    On that sunny days ten years ago, I was actually in the UK, far away from London, when my handphone rang, an anxious offspring, who had heard the news.

    I offered prompt assurances that I was perfectly safe, then went somewhere to find out what was happening. Meanwhile, down south, the emergency services were swinging into action helping the injured, collecting the corpses.

    “Your democratic governments perpetuate atrocities against my people…”

    Thus wrote one of the satanic swine responsible for the bombing in July 2005 in the heart of London, and that sums up the problem.

    YOUR democratic governments… MY People…




    Born and bred in Britain, the pig was a traitor to the very marrow, his allegiance not to his nation but to supranational sectarianism. He deserved to die, as does any ‘British’ individual who lives by such an ideology.

    I found that quote in an article by Mohamed Amin of Conservative Muslim Forum. Like you and I, he abhors the terrorism espoused by those curs. And more than that. 


    amin Mohamed Amin, of Conservative Muslim Forum


    Admirably, he does not try to muddy the waters. He recognises that theirs was, in their eyes, a religious action. Mr. Amin says that if the beast had believed that blowing up people on the London Underground was against God’s will, he would not have done it.      


    But this begs a question.


    • devil destroyed
    • His God, surely? Decent human beings, of any creed, would not recognise a deity that appreciates carnage, deliberate massacre of innocents, as their God.
    • Rather they’d see it as inspiration by God’s arch-enemy, who has a name.
    • But enough of theology.

    Mr. Amin later in his article rather spoils his message, saying we should not call what real Brits believe in ‘British values,’ in case that phrase puts off ‘some’ Muslims.

    Why the hell should it? They, no more than Protestants, Buddhists, Catholics or atheists, have any right to elevate sectarian considerations above loyalty to Queen and Country.

    Now back to theology.

    I was taken aback when he hedged on his condemnation of the atrocity with this outlandish – and arguably blasphemous – assertion, that the swinish fiends’ act was an evil act very likely (only God can be the final judge of that) to consign him to hell, and not a virtuous deed. 

    His theology stunned me. But maybe it’s just the way I see things.

    • godsname
    • If God exists, He gives us free will to follow good or evil, and thus to recognise the difference. I can see clearly that treason and terror are evil. They deserve death and whatever He does to their acolytes afterwards is BOUND to be worse!

    Anyone who recollects the terrorist slaughter in 2005  – or a week or so ago in Tunis – and believes that God might only very likely see them as sinful and Hell-deserving is just a tad dodgy.

    But enough of Mr. Amin.  Back to the perpetrators and their current clones. 

    Anyone who lives in the UK (or Australia, or Canada, or America) who regards such acts as virtuous deeds should not be allowed to live there. 

    • gallows

    The death penalty is the only punishment appropriate for those who incite or aid and abet terror and treason.

    If there are readers back there in the British Isles who think I’m wrong, okay, let’s put it to a referendum!

    • referndmlet peole vote
    • To minimise the cost of such an exercise in popular sovereignty, it could easily be put on a separate ballot paper issued with the one on EUSSR membership next year. 

    Cameron’s ( and the UK political elite’s) failure to bring back capital punishment is not only an affront to the victims for whom he laid his wreath today but an act of cowardice and of contempt for democracy.

    Good Muslim Minister Warns Off IslamoNazi Hoodlums – BUT! 

    A pleasant day near done, an enjoyable visitor from mid-morn till afternoon, then a walk to the warteg where perkadel awaited me in abundance.

    Now savouring a gin and root-beer (seriously – experimental evening) while I wait for that new TV series ‘Wayward Pines,’ much promoted –  but will it live up to expectations?

    Good to hear a bit of sense from Indonesia’s Religious Affairs Minister, Lukman Hakim Saifuddin. His predecessor, Suryadharma Ali, was such an intolerant fanatic that he became a regular fixture on this blog of ours.

    Good Indonesians Denounce ArchBigot Ali’s Latest Intolerant Outburst

    ali heretical typically asinine Ali rant

    Lukman, a rational human being, is not so headline-grabbing a character, but deserves regular mention for the welcome contrast to ArchBigot Ali.

    Anyway, Lukman has urged Indonesian Muslims to keep a cool head over a recent Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in the United States.


    main-lukman-hakim4 Lukman

    “All Muslims should not be overly provoked by the activity and conduct violence….That is not part of Islamic teaching.” 


    • fpi kill busddhist

    Pity Lukman’s interpretation of those teachings has not yet percolated into the benighted brains of Indonesia’s IslamoNazis! 


    Lukman said that Muslims were at liberty to voice their opinions about the offending contest through public dialogue. “Muslims can protest in civilized ways because Muslims do not react through brutality or other improper ways.”

    Good for him!

    The minister also urged non-Muslims to understand Islamic teaching forbids representations of the Prophet, and added that the contest was not appropriate.

    Yes, and Islamic teaching also forbids the consumption of pork and the drinking of beer. I do both, as often as time and money permit. That’s my business and if it offends others, tough – I don’t make them join in.

    I don’t draw either respectful or rude pictures of Lukman’s Prophet. It wouldn’t occur to me to spend my time doing so, but if other non-Muslims do, then it’s up to them.

    They are not Muslims, so are in no way obliged to abide by ‘Islamic teachings.’ And Muslims are not obliged to look at any drawings they deem ‘inappropriate!’

    So no offence need be taken.

    Under no circumstances should cartoonists be penalised, never mind be physically harmed. Peaceful protests by those who don’t like their work would be entirely in order. Pig-ignorant calls for beheading etc. should be an arrestable offence. 

    Muslims, if any ( unlikely) there be any who wish to draw ‘blasphemous’ pictures, may of course expect penalties, but only in terms of a ban from religious activities, like attending mosques or getting imams to solemnise weddings or funerals.

    Of course it goes without saying that there cannot be any legal/criminal proceedings against them in any democratic society.

    And another thing!  

    Pak Lukman reminds us that “Muslims believe they must not visualize their prophets because pictures can never fully capture these figures.” 

    NB  – PLURAL! Prophets.


    Muslims have several, including Nabi Isa, better known to Christians as Jesus!

    A Statue of Jesus Among the Rubble in Temanggung Image of Jesus, vandalised by Islamist savages in Temanggung, Central Java, 2011

    So if we create likenesses of Christ, like Slavador Dali’s famous picture, are we then going to have to put up with MORE  childish tantrums?



    • —-
    • What about those magnificent paintings that depict God Almighty? Are we to shut down our great art galleries for fear of hurting hyper-sensitive feelings?

    It really is about time that we heard the last of all this uptight stuff about ‘hurt feelings.’


    Being offended is part of life.

    I referred recently to the ill-mannered baggages who refused to shake my hand, covering their own hands with various pieces of cloth, to avoid the abhorrent touch of my haram skin!

    Much of my social life involves Muslims, and they agree with me there is no Islamic teaching that requires such primitive rudeness. They recognise that such conduct is grossly and gratuitously offensive.

    But I’m a big boy and didn’t threaten to behead the sad bigoted bints. I just felt sorry for their backwardness, and carried on with my day, not even the tiniest tantrum thrown.

    To offensive oafs, or oafesses, it’s enough to say –

    Just bloody well grow up!


    “Muslims believe they must not visualize their prophets because pictures can never fully capture these figures,” 

    “It’s true that we have the right to express ourselves. However, freedom is not limitless. “Freedom is limited by our responsibility to respect other people.”

    Okay, Pak Lukman -make a start by telling those pathetic rude cows who won’t shake hands to lay off the pig-ignorant discourtesy.



     – why get uptight over sad, indoctrinated door-mats?

      Hey mister Ross, long time no read. Good article and I entirely agree. Many of my own Muslim relatives shrug their shoulders and say: “I don’t care” when asked about or confronted with these cartoons.

      I’m planning to visit Jakarta this August so perhaps we can meet. I’ll keep you posted.

      All the best,

    Malaysia, Truly Arabia! Intolerance Rules Kuala Lumpur Court! 


    Like, who the hell are we, any of us, to claim we know God Almighty well enough to deny anyone else the right to address Him in any way they see fit? That, to me, is akin to blasphemy.

    Yet the highest court in the land has now ruled that Malaysian Christians may not call God ‘Allah’ – a ruling that effectively relegates a universal deity to the status of a monopoly controlled by sectarian bigots.



    Thanks be, that vile nonsense has not spread to Indonesia, linguistically and culturally so similar to Malaysia, yet with a resilient civility and tolerance that make me proud on days like this.

    Listen to this ranting arrogance

    Anyone who seeks to review the Federal Court’s decision today over the ban on the word “Allah” can be considered as abusing the powers of the court…


     Mohammed Haniff Khatri Abdulla

    ….Mohamed Haniff Khatri Abdulla, who represents the Chinese Muslim Association of Malaysia, said today’s decision should mark the end of the Catholic Church’s legal bid to use the word “Allah” in its weekly publication, Herald.

    Those strident words came after the Federal Court upheld the Court of Appeal’s October decree, that the Catholic paper could not use the word “Allah” as it could threaten national security, public order and cause confusion among the religions.

    The Muslim Lawyers Association called on all parties to respect the Federal Court’s decision to dismiss the Catholic Church’s review application.

    • freedom-of-religion
    • More to the point, who can respect a nation whose highest court – by 4 votes to 3 –  claims that a question of theology is a matter of ‘national security?’

    And which implicitly insults the intelligence of every Muslim in Malaysia by saying in effect that they are so clueless about the tenets of their own faith that hearing Christians pray to God using the same Name as they do would ‘confuse’ them.

    As for ‘public order,’ how people pray is no threat to that. The real risk to public order comes from demented fanatics like these – 

    And from the ignorant savage who shrilled that the innocent passengers on Malaysian Airlines’ Flight MH17, brought down by a missile, met their fate because the flight attendants weren’t wearing ‘Islamic headscarves and the airline served alcohol.’

    Pig-Ignorant Primitive – No Shariah On MH17, So God Killed 200 Innocents? 

    Asinine hogwash.


    My Muslim visitors in Jakarta use Tuhan and Allah interchangeably, as do Christians – one of their most common sayings is Orang sabar disayang sama Tuhan.

     ‘The patient man is dear to God.’

    But this kind of news would try the patience of a saint. 

    Despite my most agreeable day here, a very Indonesan day, rainy season outside, but indoors dangdut playing all afternoon and rounded off by my cheerful visitor putting the rice-cooker to good use so I can dine at leisure later tonight, I am P###ed OFF!

    Malaysia wasn’t always a sectarian cess-pool.

    In 2009, the High Court had declared that the decision by the home minister to ban Herald from using the word “Allah” was illegal, null and void…High Court judge Lau Bee Lan had declared it unconstitutional to ban non-Muslims from using the word “Allah” provided it was not used to propagate their religion among Muslims.

    One is inclined to ask why the heck shouldn’t they. Muslims like to convert people, so Christians ought to have the same rights to proselytise.

    But leave that for the moment. The sane ruling has now been reversed.

    Malaysia’s battle over the use of the word “Allah” has attracted international attention, as well as ridicule, including from Islamic scholars abroad who hold that “Allah” is a generic name for God and has been used by both Muslims and non-Muslims, as the word predates Islam.  http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/any-more-appeal-on-allah-decision-an-abuse-of-courts-says-lawyer

    Blind to history, then, as well as rationality.

    Sad to see a country sink so low
